Practice Nurses and Nurse Practitioner
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse or nurse practitioner rather than a doctor. They are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
Telephone consultation appointments are available online by registering at https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk/account/login?ReturnUrl=%2F or ask at reception for details. The telephone appointments are released each day at Midnight for the next day. These are for telephone consultations only and not to come into the surgery. Once your problem is discussed with the clinician you will be made aware of the time needed to come down to surgery if applicable.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
Extended Hours access
If you require an appointment after 6pm and before 8pm Monday to Friday we can offer you pre bookable appointments at either Thornley Medical Centre, Glossop, and Ashton Primary Care Centre.
